Sunday morning we sang a song that I enjoy. But I enjoyed it even more when we were listening to it in the van this afternoon and my kids were singing it and talking about how much they loved it. And when we got home, we talked a bit about the scripture from which this song comes, Luke 1.
46And Mary said:
“My soul glorifies the Lord
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful
55 to Abraham and his descendants forever,
just as he promised our ancestors.”
My soul magnifies the Lord today – He has done and continues to do great things for me.
Take a listen. I guarantee that you’ll be singing along by the end of the song.
What are you glorifying the Lord for in your life today?
